About Us

 

  • We are a tuition-free public charter school.

  • We are serving grades K-2 in the 2017-18 school year, and adding at least one grade per year until we are K-5.

  • We have small class sizes: currently, our student-teacher ratio is 1:10 in Kindergarten and 1:12 in first and second grade.  We have a maximum of 25 students per classroom.

  • We utilize Direct Instruction, one of the most effective, research-supported teaching practices, to help our students make learning gains. 

  • We serve all of our students breakfast and lunch at no cost, regardless if they qualify for free or reduced lunch.

  • Our school relies on volunteers; please consider donating your time (see the Donors & Support section under the More Info tab).

OUR MISSION

 

Our mission is to provide educational choices within the public school system for children from kindergarten through grade five.  The Cannon Beach Academy shall strive to provide:

  • A balanced education to nurture development of the whole child, encouraging each child to become a lifelong learner and a benefit to our society.  The school places equal emphasis on: academic excellence, artistic appreciation and expression, respect for and appreciation of our natural environment, social development and responsibility, appreciation for cultural diversity, and physical fitness.

  • Professional enrichment and growth to teachers through opportunities to participate in the creative implementation of the curriculum.

  • Opportunities for parents to be directly involved in the school operation and make significant contributions to their children’s educational environment.

  • Opportunities for the community to contribute in shaping the future of the youngest members.
